Subject/Title of Window: Our Nations Window

Brief Description of Subject: We continue to enlarge on our area of Christian activity and think in terms of our nation. There is a large flag of our country in the upper section of this window. We have shown the seasons of the year; the blazing red summer sun, the snow flake, the yellow sprout with its small green leaves, and three autumn leaves. The two hands represent the interaction of people, another place where our faith is to be active. We live in an age of missles, therefore we have shown a missle on a launching pad.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
